These are the current training services on offer but please contact me if you would like to discuss a specific requirement.
LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT
As a leader and manager, I have built and developed small teams; then in my most recent role I led a team of over 200. This ‘real life’ experience means I can deliver training for leaders and managers. A series of courses for new managers looking at developing the skills and knowledge they need have been very popular, and I can develop this course to meet the needs of your organisation or develop a bespoke training course.
I am particularly excited to be accredited as a facilitator for the tmsdi having been a fan of their team management profile for some time. I am able to assess profiles and work with teams to consider’ why some individuals, teams, and organisations perform, work effectively and achieve their objectives, while others fail.’
Having worked in front line Children’s Services for a number of years, as well as my work as a volunteer manager within Girlguiding I have experience of training staff in safeguarding as well as managing staff dealing with safeguarding issues day to day.
I am able to offer training for your organisation to meet your specific needs.
This also includes externally accredited Level 2 training which means that your qualification will be recognised if you transfer work places, as well as CPD accredited courses.
A 12 hour Advanced Safeguarding Course is available with a mix of classroom and home study.
Specific training for Designated Safeguarding Leads (one day training) is also on offer, as well as managing allegations, Prevent and self-harm.
WORKPLACE COMPLIANCE TRAINING
In this day and age, ensuring that any organisation – from a few volunteers running a local service to a multimillion pound business – meets the legal requirements for health and safety is a vital compliance issue. For this section of my training offer, I am delighted to work with Steve Booth of SEB Training Services. We bring over 50 years’ experience of working in the industrial and care sectors. We offer a full range of courses including:
- Health and Safety
- First Aid – one day Emergency First Aid at Work and full First Aid at Work
- Paediatric First Aid
- Food Safety Level 2
We can bring this to your workplace, or source a local venue. Delivery can be negotiated to suit the needs of your business with a flexible approach to timing. Our experience within this field means that we can make the training interesting and informative.
COURSES FOR PARENTS AND STAFF
I offer a wider range of courses related to the issues which families face. These are usually developed bespoke for the client but popular courses include:
- Behaviour management
- Practical playwork
- Effective working with parents
- Voice of the child
Each of these can be offered as an accredited course if required.
